||Changes in the central nervous system and their clinical correlates during long-term spaceflight
||June 1994, Vol.65, No.6, p.562-572. 94 ref.
||Changes that occur in the human central nervous system (CNS) during long-duration spaceflight are reviewed. Effects discussed include: changes in the neurovestibular and sensory systems; CNS changes due to musculoskeletal alterations; sleep disturbances and circadian rhythm; radiation effects on the CNS; fluid and electrolyte influences on the CNS; neurotransmitter changes in the CNS; psychological and behavioural changes. More extensive and persistent changes might be expected with extended stays in space.
